Sue S ~ Thank you for taking my class! I recommend trying an exercise where you lift just an inch off the Mat, trying to keep your legs vertical (they can be bent too if that is better for your body). This will help activate the muscles needed for the Rollover but you do not have to roll all the way over. Another option is to follow the leg pattern without rolling onto your shoulders. This will also strengthen your abdominals without adding strain. I hope this helps!
Thanks so much, Gia! Great start to the week. My only constructive feedback here (and I notice this in other classes too) is for pushups there is rarely a frame of reference given to the class. We start doing pushups yet never know how many. Will it be 3? 5? 10? 100?? Helpful for the class to know what they are getting into. Thanks!
